Created as James Deering’s winter home in the early 1900’s, today Vizcaya Museum and Gardens  in Miami is a National Historic Landmark and accredited museum with lavish gardens that harken to Europe. CSL visited Miami to experience this decadent home.

 It’s easy to assume that we’ve driven into a European villa at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.  From the wrought iron gates to a sunken esplanade and Doric columns it looks like the Venetian dreamscape of its original owner the industrial executive millionaire James Deering.

Remarkably grand in scale and decoration in every sense (we spot numerous hidden entrances), we spend a delightful morning touring the formal garden where clever repetition, grey stone sculptures sitting amongst varying shades of green, flowing water fountains, live oaks and Australian pines pruned with precision make it a sensory experience.
